After the political parties failed to forge consensus to pick the candidate of the Prime Minister even after repeated calls for the national consensus government for past 20 days, President Dr Ram Baran Yadav has extended the deadline for another five days to the parties.
Following the request of the leaders of four major political forces- UCPN (Maoist), Nepali Congress, CPN (UML) and United Madhesi Democratic Front (UDMF)- during the meeting held at President’s official residence Shital Niwas today morning, President Dr Yadav granted the deadline for the fourth consecutive times to come up with a Prime Minister candidate to lead the national consensus government.
However, during the meeting, President Dr Yadav was quick to urge the leaders of the party to make this deadline as a last effort of the series of deadline extension. President also expressed his dissatisfaction with the parties’ leaders about the slow intensity of the all-party-meetings in recent days.
Maoist Chairperson Puspa Kamal Dahal , Congress President Sushil Koirala , UML Chairperson Jhala Nath Khanal and UDMF Coordinator Bijaya Kumar Gachhadar Samyukta were present in the meeting.
The President has summoned the leaders today after the parties missed the third deadline yesterday to forge much-hyped national consensus government.
Earlier yesterday, Prachanda has met the President Dr Yadav to request him for extending the deadline again. Prior to that, President had said at a program in Arghakhanchi that he is planning to hold a all-party-meeting if the parties repeatedly fails to come up with consensus on forming the government.
